Area 1, generally north of Westcliff Road and west of Blackburn Drive, will be complete this week.

Affected properties will receive direct notices with instructions as work nears on their streets.

The maintenance to be performed is slurry seal, a process that involves applying an emulsion to the entire road surface. This treatment creates a smoother driving surface and extends the life of the street.

A Street Maintenance Fee is assessed to properties monthly through City utility bills. Each single-family home is billed $1.70 per month. Other residential uses are charged a fee based on a single-family equivalent per dwelling unit. Non-residential properties are classified by use and the fee is calculated using a single-family equivalent per unit.

The fee provides a dedicated funding source for maintaining public streets based on usage. All revenue collected is placed in a Street Maintenance Fund to be used for this purpose. Funding may not be used for road construction or reconstruction.

The City of Killeen apologizes for any inconvenience as a result of this work and appreciates your cooperation as we maintain these streets.
